People who love technology are always eager to embrace new tools. During the past twenty years of incredible digital innovation, early adopters have reaped the significant benefits of trying things -including increased efficiency. Software apps like Trello, Skype, and Basecamp each offer myriad workplace benefits.
Recently, Microsoft has quietly selected the best features of these tools and rolled them into a single, well-thought-out, easy-to-use product: Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft Teams is the new paradigm for productivity, allowing use of the Microsoft Office tool set in a rich, cooperative environment – all without changing the way you already work.
Microsoft Teams uses team and channel-based chat functionalities to allow people both inside and outside of an organization to easily and securely collaborate – for example, using the Chat function to discuss project updates.
Users can upload files directly to the Chat, making a single version of the file available to everyone in the Channel. Each Channel contains its own files, calendar, Planner for tasks, etc. You can use ‘mentions’ (@person) to call someone’s attention to something.
By allowing everyone access to the same file, Microsoft Teams gives organizations a “source of truth” for projects. Work with your colleagues live in Word, Excel and PowerPoint using either the web versions of Office or the installed versions from your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.
Microsoft Teams is ideal for tech users who yearn for cutting-edge technology; Teams is nothing short of amazing! We can do all of this in a neatly integrated system that we are already familiar with.
